Dover And Shepway District Councils To Share Corporate Management Team

Wednesday, 12 January 2011
Further to discussions held on Tuesday (11th January 2011) between Dover District Council and Shepway District Council Cabinet Members, it is the intention of both Cabinets to progress the move to a shared corporate management team, starting with the appointment of a joint Head of Paid Service between both authorities.

A draft protocol has been agreed in principle, which will be put to a simultaneous executive meeting in February 2011 with formal recommendations being made to the respective councils in early March 2011.

It is hoped that the process of appointing a joint Head of Paid Service will be concluded in June 2011.

The draft protocol sets out in principle the way forward to achieve financial savings whilst protecting frontline services.
